Sample text

When weight is placed on the shoulders with an incorrect posture, muscles and cartilage have to take over a portion of the skeleton’s support function. Also, for aesthetic reasons, the spine should be in a neutral position during the slight squatting positions, such as the basic technique for “chair” or various tiered pyramids (see fig. 5). In this posture, the knees should never be rotated in because with added weight, this misalignment can strain the ligaments in the knee (see fig. 6). Thighs, calves, and feet should be lined up as shown in Figure 5.

It eliminates laborious movement descriptions no one understands. Without images, the movements necessary to build human pyramids are very difficult to visualize. It would require lots of information and movement descriptions, often for several people at the same time, which can be very confusing and tiring for the individual. Using charts facilitates working independently on select pyramids within a small group. The children can decide for themselves which position they will take within the structure and how long they want to work on the individual movements and sequences.

The young artists can then leisurely run through the entire production and memorize it more easily. They will know where and when they need to be in what position and can find their places more quickly during the performance. A good task for children is to make a drawing of the pyramids from memory after practice and fill in their own name and the names of their fellow acrobats. It is an easy way to determine whether the children know their places, what their self-image may look like, and how they see others.
